DUBAI, UAE, October 29 /PRNewswire/ --
- Healthcare Information System Goes Live in Record Time of Two Months
In record time of two months, Pragmedic Solutions - a Dubai and US-based healthcare software solutions provider has successfully implemented the Healthcare Information System (HIS) for Emaar Healthcare Group, the healthcare subsidiary of Emaar Properties, it was announced today.
Research shows that doctors exhaust 40 to 60 per cent of their working hours engaged in documentation thereby moving them away from patient contact. The HIS solution will now enable Emaar Healthcare to eliminate this bottleneck and give more quality time to patient wellbeing as well as enhance their own research and the study of the latest breakthroughs in medicine by their clinical staff.
Partnered by Methodist International - a division of The Methodist Hospital, Emaar Healthcare used IBM Consulting as its system integrator in this makeover and now offers all relevant personal and medical data at the push of a button.
Kashif Haqqi, CEO and Founder of Pragmedic Solutions said: "The solution for Emaar Healthcare is so advanced in its state-of-the-art technological applications that it cannot only shorten the waiting time for decision making which can be crucial for a patient, analyze the clinical documentation for specialist assessment but also aid the accounts department to iron out the kinks in the billing process."
Commenting on the giant strides taken by Dubai in the realm of healthcare he added that it could be the perfect case study in how the nexus between health providers and the software industry can create an exceptional synergy.
"It reduces costs, widens the umbrella of protection for millions by streamlining documentation and directly and positively addresses the very factors that are contributing to the resistance facing US President Obama in his health care initiative. I can confidently say that Information Systems properly employed make the crucial difference.
"By going in for the HIS solution, Emaar Healthcare has again raised the bar on medical standards in Dubai and the region and established a precedent. It hopes to create for its patients a real time family health record and ensure a series of procedures that generate a hi-tech bedside manner between doctor and the patient," he said.
The solution from Pragmedic will enable care providers to offer improved patient and hospital communication, ensure enhanced quality and safety of care, improved cost/revenue management and increased operating efficiency and workflow.
In addition, the solution also ensures patients receive access to reliable and accurate health information, improved direct care provider communication, efficient and customer friendly care experiences and timely health management services.
